Federation of Master Builders Award Presented to PBM

Property Building Maintenance (Wales) achieve the acclaimed award for Local Authority / Public Sector at the Federation of Master Builders Cymru annual awards 2019 for the refurbishment of Gwyn Court, Sheltered accommodation on behalf of Tai Tarian.

The FMB Cymru Master Builder Awards Gala Dinner was held on Friday 10th May 2019 at The Radisson Blu Hotel in Cardiff. The evening featured a gala awards dinner announcing the 2019 Welsh MBA winner.

The event was aimed at building professionals, industry stakeholders, industry partners, suppliers, architects, local authorities, civil servants, builders merchants and, of course, Master Builders. The master builder awards celebrate the incredible achievements of master builders across the UK, showcasing examples of high-quality craftsmanship, exceptional customer service and building excellence.

Bridgend-based building firm Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd has scooped a prestigious Master Builder Award, taking the prize for best Public Sector / Local Authority project in the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) Cymru awards.

Since 1999, the Master Builder Awards has been a flagship for high-quality building work, showcasing examples of fantastic craftsmanship, exceptional customer service and building excellence. Organised by the FMB, the awards programme is unique in that any project entered by the builder must be backed up by the customer – giving clients the opportunity to support those building companies that have delivered exceptional results. The awards programme recognises the hard work and contribution that small and medium-sized (SME) construction firms make to the UK construction industry.

Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd was crowned the winner for its work on a sheltered accommodation project. The works entailed a full refurbishment of an independent site of 17 units owned by Tai Tarian Housing Association to meet Welsh Housing Quality standards, RNIB compliance and Occupational Therapist reports and owner recommendations.

The completed scheme was finished to the very highest of standards and has enabled the residents, who are mainly elderly and less abled, to enjoy much improved quality of life within the new facilities. The team at Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd have stated that enhancing the lives of the residents and knowing they have made a real difference made the project hugely rewarding to them as a company. The judges were particularly impressed by the fact that this project was delivered ahead of schedule, under budget, and carried out whilst the residents remained in the building.

Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd was selected by the judges to win the Cymru Award, which was presented at the FMB Cymru Master Builder Awards Gala Dinner, sponsored by Rockwool at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Cardiff on Friday 10th May. The firm will now go through to compete in the national finals for the chance to win the UK category title. The national ceremony will be held at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane, London on 20th September.

Ifan Glyn, Director of FMB Cymru, said: “The Master Builder Awards give the FMB the opportunity to celebrate a job well done and for clients to say thank you to their builders. For the construction industry, it is an opportunity to celebrate all that is good about small local building firms and their contribution to the UK economy.

“Time and time again, we have been impressed with just how far these builders will go to ensure their client is happy. It is this dedication that we want to celebrate. Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd should feel justly proud of their achievement in winning and we wish the firm every success in the national competition.”
